Hi! I have just finished by second year of my English degree, and I am planning on applying for a PGCE to start in September 2012! I've been spending time gaining experience in a primary school setting, but my question is, have I done enough! Since the beginning of September 2010 I have been going into my local primary school on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and working with four children on a one to one basis and helping them with their reading and doing activities with them in order to improve their self confidence. Then, since April (as I was beginning to have more free time from Uni!) I also went into school every Thursday to help out in a year 2 class. Soon after that I starting going in every Monday morning to help out in a year 3/4 class (this increased to all day Monday once I finshed Uni). After I finished Uni, I started helping out in a reception class on a Tuesday. I still go in on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon as well! So in a nutshell! Two afternoons a week since the beginning of the school year. 1 day a week since April. 2 days a week since May 3 days a week since June And I have worked with reception, year 2 and a year 3/4 class. I'm worried that it will go against me that I have worked with year 5 or 6! I would love to, but there aren't any more days! And I'm worried it won't be enough! So I'm just wondering what everyone thinks! Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
